Democrat Senator Deletes Heretical Tweet After MASSIVE Backlash from Christians


Georgia Democratic Senator Raphael Warnock, an ordained minister, recently caused quite a stink with an Easter Sunday tweet.

In the tweet, the pastor claimed that Christianity's holiest day transcended the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Additionally, Warnock also maintained that Christians, and even non-Christians, only needed to do good works to gain eternal salvation, excluding Jesus' role entirely.

Here is what he said,

"The meaning of Easter is more transcendent than the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Whether you are Christian or not, through a commitment to helping others we are able to save ourselves."

You don't have to be an ordained minister to see that Warnock's tweet amounted to preaching a false gospel and was heresy to boot.

Massive criticism of Warnock's dismissal of Christ's prime role in the Easter Sunday miracle of salvation for all humanity quickly erupted. His tweet was simply too much for many Christian scholars and believers, who rightfully took him to task.

Warnock, who is a graduate of Union Theological Seminary -- an institution known for its extreme progressivism -- quickly deleted his offensive tweet. The damage was done, however, leaving many Americans to wonder just how someone like Raphael Warnock became first an ordained minister and then a US Senator, and he was certainly called out on it.

“This is what the heresy of liberation theology does—reduces the significance of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, to self-salvific moralism and thereby making ourselves God,” wrote radio host Darrell B. Harrison, who works at Pastor John MacArthur’s podcast “Grace to You.”

“This is a false gospel and heresy,” wrote attorney Jenna Ellis, who is representing MacArthur’s Grace Community Church in its legal battles with Los Angeles County. “We cannot save ourselves. The absolute truth and only meaning of Easter that matters is the literal, physical resurrection of Jesus Christ, and we must accept Him as Lord and Savior. Read Romans, ‘Reverend’ Warnock. You are a false teacher.”

The College Republicans at Georgia State University simply tweeted Ephesians 2:8-10 in response to Warnock, which says: “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”
